I can't stress enough that no matter what type of bird you have, you need to change their toys around at least once a month! It's so essential for their well being and mental health. They need change and fun and play - just like we do on a daily basis. So make sure your birds are getting it! In Fiji's cage I recently made a trip to the petstore for some random goodness. I left a couple toys she LOVES in her cage... like the one unwinding on the right and the swing she has. She likes those and the swing allows me to hang different toys from it. She loved the new stuff, though! And it's always good to rotate their favorite ones out to encourage them to explore more. Or, you can keep them in, it's up to you.
